Book Giveaway: Collateral: A Novel by Ellen Hopkins

I’m giving away a copy of Collateral: A Novel by Ellen Hopkins.

To enter the contest, post a comment below that you’d like to win. The drawing will be held Monday, March 11.

Meet Ashley, a graduate student at San Diego State University. She was raised in northern California reading poetry and singing backupin her best friend’s band. The last thing she ever expected was to end up a military wife. But one night, she meets a handsome Marine named Cole. He doesn’t match the stereotype of the aggressive military man she’d always presumed to be true; he’s passionate and romantic, and he even writes poetry. Their relationship evolves into a deeply felt, sexually charged love affair that goes on for five years and survives four deployments. Cole desperately wants Ashley to marry him, but when she meets another man, a college professor, with similar professional pursuits and values, she begins to see what life might be like outside the shadow of war.

Written in Ellen Hopkins’s stunning poetic verse style, Collateral captures the hearts of the soldiers on the battlefield and the minds of the friends, family, and lovers they leave behind. While those at home may be far from the relentless, sand-choked skies of the Middle East and the crosshairs of a sniper rifle, they, too, sacrifice their lives and happiness for their country at war. And all must eventually ask themselves if the collateral damage it causes is worth the fight.

    I would love to have this book. I am an army wife and I’ve always enjoyed reading books by Ellen Hopkins. She is such a great writer and I think that this book would really be touching and have many parallels to my life and the struggles that military spouses face. I have not read the book but I am hoping that the main character pulls thru the difficult times such as deployment, being scared, boredome, etc just like I have done in my marriage. Please consider me to receive this book. Thank you
